Cooking, Here and There

March 6, 2014

It’s been a while since I’ve posted some recent cooking endeavors, so let’s do that. My brother and I cooked some of this post together, as we tend to do, with these first dishes being from the Japanese Soul Cooking cookbook. I bought it for him for Christmas so I could read it and we […]

Finally, I tried the Meatstick, the formerly off-menu burger at One Eared Stag. It’s a top selection on their brunch menu, based on my dining room observations. I’ll save you the suspense, to me it’s a top burger in Atlanta. I think I like it more than Bocado and The General Muir. Muss & Turner’s, […]

BoccaLupo – Visit #3 out of many to come

March 2, 2014

BoccaLupo is one of the best new spots in Atlanta, and I couldn’t have been happier to have a recent date night there with my pasta loving wife. I dig the menu offerings. It’s basically a handful of stellar appetizers, and a bunch of pasta. I mean a lot of pasta. So many Italian restaurants have […]

Gato Arigato

February 21, 2014

Gato Arigato has been operating out of Gato Bizco in Candler Park for many months now, though I recently made my first visit to the Japanese inspired pop-up operated by Chef Allen Suh. The menu is constantly changing, almost as much as their days of operation, with the most recent schedule having them open Sunday […]

Pressure Cooking [Wings, Onion Soup, Beef Stew]

February 18, 2014

The pressure cooker I was gifted last year has supplanted my homemade immersion circulator as cooking toy of the year. I’m using this bad boy on the regular – probably a couple times a week. Pressure cooking has an stigma of being dangerous, but I assure you it’s safer than the electrical fire waiting to happen […]

One Eared Stag

February 13, 2014

beef tartare What’s the deal with One Eared Stag? Why is it nearly empty every time I visit? Am I just going at odd hours? They are open a lot – for lunch and dinner during the week, as well as breakfast/brunch on the weekends, the latter being one of the best no-wait brunch situations […]

Chat Patti

February 11, 2014

It had been ages since I’ve visited Chat Patti, the vegetarian Indian restaurant off North Druid Hills, when my family and I visited on a recent Sunday afternoon. I’ve only been a few times, but frequently think to myself that I need to make a return visit to the smaller, casual and friendly eatery, which […]

Joystick Gamebar

February 6, 2014

Joystick Gamebar on Edgewood, in the old Dynamic Dish space – I like this place. I had a nice beer from BlueTarp Brewing Co. from Decatur. I had a damn fine, slutty thin-style double burger from Illegal Food, who has partnered with Joystick to prepare some cared for grub. And I played NBA Jams, Tournament Edition with […]
